A master plan for the future.

In 2011, the future of Penn’s Landing was first envisioned in the Master Plan for the Central Delaware. This plan became a roadmap to guide all waterfront development between Port Richmond and Pennsport.

After a three-year study involving input from the community, a team of designers and engineers confirmed that a new park space was possible at the waterfront. Construction is anticipated to begin in late 2021 and will be completed by 2024.

Thanks to city, state, and philanthropic leaders, the Park at Penn’s Landing will become a reality. This project will also include a new trail along Columbus Boulevard and an extension of the South Street Bridge to bring pedestrians directly to the waterfront.

Today, DRWC and its engagement team, led by PennPraxis; Little Giant Creative; SEAMAAC; Make the World Better Foundation; and the Village of Arts & Humanities is developing a major city-wide outreach effort. The goal is to cultivate the community’s vision for this new public space and help decide future programming.
